Etymologically, geometry is made up of two words: geo and metron. Geo means earth and metron is referred as measurement. Geometry is a branch of mathematics which deals with the studies of the problems related to the shape, size and position of figures as well as construction and measurement of angles sides etc. In other words, it is said to be a science which is pertaining to the study of geometrical figures.
Plane GeometryBack to Top
Plane geometry is the study of plane geometrical figures. Plane geometry deals with shapes like: circle, angle, triangle, rectangle, square etc. It is a vast study of measurement, construction, area and various applications on plane figures.
Solid GeometryBack to Top
Solid geometry deals with the study of solid geometrical surfaces. It is concerned with the shapes such as: cube, cuboid, sphere, pyramid, cylinder, cone, prism etc.. Solid geometry is a branch of geometry dealing with the study of construction, measurement of area, volume and many more applications related to solid figures.
